Agriculture and construction equipment distributor CEA is set to become the Australian distributor of Komptech shredders after acquiring ELB Equipment.
CEA CEO Hylton Taylor said as a leading distributor of world-renowned capital equipment brands, ELB is a natural fit for the CEA business.
“We see this as a great opportunity to further expand our product portfolio and build on our already strong suite of brands we represent in the marketplace today. Operating for almost 40 years, our business understands the market requirements, and how best to meet the evolving demands of our customer base,” Mr Taylor said.
“CEA will seek to capitalise on the extensive knowledge from within the ELB Equipment business, ensuring the high level of service customers have come to expect from ELB remains throughout the transition period.”
CEA will also become the distributor of Diamond Z, Screenpod and TrackStack, adding high speed grinders, stacking conveyers and modular wind sifters to its portfolio of products.
“The waste recycling business is a growth industry and Komptech occupies a unique position in that sector,” Mr Taylor said.
ELB Equipment Managing Director Christopher Malan said the company is excited about the opportunity to further expand and evolve its footprint across Australia and New Zealand.
“This is a great opportunity for our highly skilled staff who are passionate about the business to grow and evolve and join a business with a very strong and positive culture driven by its highly professional leadership team,” he said.
